the government, folks with the national deficit dropping at its fastest rate in 60 years? it is time to stop the obsession with deficits and start an obsession about middle-class job creation. >> well, governor granholm, i'm going to give the president credit for these numbers -- >> stop the presses -- >> but this nation is still woefully unemployed. he has to take credit for that, too. i know his numbers could not have come at a better time for an administration that's had a rough couple months. in the crossfire tonight, a pair of economic experts, david madlin director of the american worker project for the center of political progress. >> and david, let me start with you. even though this morning's jobs numbers sound rea
it would explode the deficit, that wouldn't look like it was going to expand government to basically abide by what boehner just said there, the cost could potentially be astronomical in some places. now, it could end up being that the president's health care law ends up costing a lot more than the experts have said, but for right now the best people we got, the congressional budget office insists it's not going to be that costly. it's hard for republicans to come up with something that will be as fiscally neutral and responsible as the law as it is written right now that the president has. >> it was like the speaker saying holding up four candy canes saying like all these? i'll give them to you. thank you chuck todd and clarence page. >>> up next, what's the explanation for this star wars inspired scene on the national mall here in washington? the sideshow's next. and this is "hardball," the place for politics.
